Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered

Your tour begins with a morning pickup from your central Ho Chi Minh City hotel and an around 2-hour drive to Cao Dai Temple (Tay Ninh Holy See) in Tay Ninh.

On arrival, set out to explore the sacred temple with your guide and learn more about the fascinating Cao Dai religion, which borrows elements from Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, and Taoism. Then, take part in the midday mass, admiring the monks in their colorful robes and listening to the mesmerizing chants.

After stopping for lunch (included) at a local restaurant, continue to discover one of the most fascinating remnants of the Vietnam-American war – the Cu Chi Tunnels. Venture underground to explore the network of tunnels and bunkers, which stretch for over 124 miles (200km), and hear how they were used by the Viet Cong guerilla fighters. During your visit, explore the underground war bunkers, command centers, and weapons stores; crawl through one of the narrow solider tunnels; and pose for photos peeking out of a camouflaged trapdoor.

Back in Ho Chi Minh City, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Really enjoyed the tour to the Cau Dai temple. Was there at the right time to see their prayer session. The Cu Chi tunnels was very interesting. Gave a good view of the fighting methods in the different wars. Going in the tunnel is not for the tall, knee or back sensitive or claustrophobic.but didnt take away from the experience. Guide was fantastic, great English and answered any questions The restaurant that the lunch was included was substandard to what we have experienced in like restaurants in Vietnam.

I didn't even want to see the tunnels, but had to go there in order to see the Cao Dai Temple, which was great. The guide started with interesting facts about Vietnamese family life, but then after the tunnels gave some incorrect facts about Americans in the war, which is inappropriate when you are accepting payments from American tourists. I became rather ill just before we got to the tunnels and just sat in the shade while the others were tunneling. Before the tunnels the guide expressed concern, but afterward she didn't even ask where I was or how I felt. The bus was quite decrepit and very crowded.

A great tour. Guide was excellent in both knowledge on the temple and the tunnels. We stopped at a workshop on our way to the Temple, which supported/gave jobs for victims of war, amazing artwork. Temple was interesting and pretty. Saw part of their noon ritual. Had lunch, and then made way for the tunnels/war exhibits. All in all a great full day! It was quite long, we had planned on being done by 5pm, however did go from about 8am - 7.30pm when getting dropped back in Ho Chi Minh City. This is not a complaint, just warning if you wanted to also make dinner plans. The temple is a long way out so it is probably this long most of the time.
